Where all the stories celebrating the increase numbers of Māori in Cabinet?

The Luxon Cabinet has seven (out of 20) who are Māori. This is a huge 35% of Cabinet. The Hipkins Cabinet that office had only five Māori Ministers, or 28%. So where are all the stories celebrating this?

Or is there so little publicity around this, because the Māori in the Luxon Cabinet are the wrong sort? They don't think the Treaty was about co-governance. They prioritise equality over equity. They obviously don't count.

Also did you know nine of the 20 Cabinet Ministers are , or 45%? The so called trail-blazing Ardern Cabinet had only seven female Cabinet Ministers when sworn in, or 35%. But again the female Ministers in the Luxon Cabinet don't count it seems, as they are have centre-right views.
